STOLEN: Entire Lindstrand cloudhopper bottom end
STOLEN: Entire Lindstrand cloudhopper bottom end. Stolen following a landing at 17.50 on the 5th of October 2013 - on Bramshot Common, near Liphook, Hampshire, UK. The theft took place during the 25 minutes it took us to go to the guard room to get the key to unlock the security gate. There is no way any vehicle could have accessed the site, so it was lifted and carried - some considerable distance - probably by local yobs who possibly saw it as scrap value. They left the envelope bag there. Stolen parts are the bottom end (frame and seat, CN BA808), burner (CN BU936), Cameron CB426 tank (CN 0273/4606). The balloon identification plate with registration G-CDAD is welded to the seat frame. Police report has been filled and the hope is that the bits might surface locally - or end up on Ebay. As there are only a few of these around, please help me by being vigilant.
